What is a Special District?

Special Districts are a form of local government created by a local community to meet a specific need. When landowners want new services or higher levels of existing services, they can form a district to pay for them. Special districts focus on a specific set of services, like irrigation, fire, cemetery, library and vector control.

Instream Leasing

Did you know that Oregon State Law requires that a water right holder beneficially use their water right at least one out of every five seasons or it could be subject to forfeiture?

HID’s Instream Lease Program offers to temporarily transfer a water rights instream for fisheries, habitat, and enhanced river flow benefits. It allows a patron who has not beneficially used all or a portion of their water rights for the past four years to protect their right by showing beneficial use. This is a temporary one-year lease. Water rights will continue to stay appurtenant to the land that it is assignedto.
HID offers this beneficial use program free of charge to its patrons. If you would like to know more about the instream lease program, please call our office at 541-567-3024 and ask to speak to Karra.
 
Requests for an Instream Lease should be submitted no later than May 1, 2018.
